Loved the 1L bottles, and what’s inside is equally excellent. Starts off with a whiff of something like rubber cement and/or plastic. That sounds bad, I know, but it’s minor enough to just sort of be unique and endearing, as it coexists with a very good, thick nose of agave, a little fruity, not especially peppery, and just a hint of wet pavement. Palate is very good, green agave, lightly sweet, medium+ body, and with very excellent smooth and lasting finish. This is really great stuff and the value is superlative - the epitome of the perfect house tequila.

The Camarenas know how to make tequila. This high proof tequila is a treat. The nose is strong and full of fresh agave, green apple and alcohol; in a good way. I taste white pepper and sweet agave. The flavor is intense and the finish is excellent. It’s truly a treat for blanco lovers. ¡Salud!
